The word “bunny” is a funny one. It used to be a pet name for a squirrel, but somehow evolved into the cute version of “rabbit.” Incidentally, rabbits weren’t always called by that name. Back when the adults of the species were called “coney,” a “rabbit” was the baby animal. In other words, our naming relationship with bunnies over the years has been all about giving them pet names again and again!
